General conditions

The organiser reserves the right to end the prize draw at their own discretion at any time without advance notice. This option is of particular use to the organiser in cases where the normal execution of the prize draw cannot be guaranteed due to technical or legal reasons. In this case, the organiser reserves the right to draw the winner of the prize from amongst the eligible participants who had participated prior to the time of termination.

The organiser also reserves the right, at their own discretion, to exclude persons from participation:

(a) for manipulation associated with access to or execution of the prize draw;

(b) for violations of these Conditions of Participation;

(c) for unfair conduct;

(d) for incorrect or misleading statements associated with participation in this prize draw.

 

Should a person attempt to compromise the legitimate operation of the prize draw, e.g. using technical aids, this may present a violation of criminal or civil law. Should a person attempt such a thing, the organiser reserves the right to seek damages through legal means and withdraw or demand the return of prizes. The failure to enforce any provision in these official Conditions of Participation shall not constitute the organiser’s waiver of that provision.

 

Data protection

The participant agrees that the organiser shall store all data required for the execution of the prize draw for the duration of the prize draw. In the case of a win, the organiser reserves the right to publish the given names and surnames (shortened to initials) of the winner along with their place of residence on the www.musicstore.de website, in the newsletter and/or on social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Google+). The participant may object to their data being published after being notified of the win at any time by email to datenschutz@musicstore.de, or by post to the organiser’s address provided in this section. 

The organiser has assigned services necessary for the execution and settlement of the prize draw in part to third parties (cooperation partners). Participants’ data shall be stored by the cooperation partner/s for the purposes of executing and settling the prize draw for the duration of the prize draw. All data shall be deleted after the end and settlement of the prize draw.

By participating in this prize draw, the participant agrees to the use of their data by third parties for the stated purposes and, in particular, transmission of their data to third parties by the organiser.

The participants may revoke their permission for their data to be used at any time. By revoking this permission, the participant withdraws their participation in the prize draw. Furthermore, through the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG), the participant has the guaranteed rights to information and – provided that the legal requirements for such action have been met (cf. § 35 BDSG) – correction, blocking or deletion of collected data.

The stated rights can be exercised by sending a notification via post to:

The organiser undertakes to protect the privacy of the participants and ensures that the data shall be used pursuant to the German Federal Data Protection Act, the German Telemedia Act, European Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC and EU directive 02/58/EC.

Liability

With the fulfilment or handover of the prize to the participant, the organiser shall be released from all obligations, insofar as the organiser, depending on the nature of the prize draw, has any legal obligation towards the participant.

Warranty claims on winnings that are provided by cooperation partners for the prize draw shall be asserted exclusively against the cooperation partners.

According to legal provisions, the organiser shall assume liability in the case of fraudulent intent, wilful intent or gross negligence. Damages caused by the organiser as a result of ordinary negligence shall only be compensated if there is breach of a material obligation, the breach of which jeopardises the achievement of the purpose of the contract and/or the fulfilment of which is necessary for the execution and settlement of the prize draw and on the fulfilment of which the participants may regularly depend (cardinal obligation).

The organiser assumes no liability for the insolvency of a cooperation partner or the consequences this may have on the execution and settlement of the prize draw. The decisions of the organiser in all matters pertaining to the relevant prize draw are final and binding. The organiser reserves the right to correct printing errors or mechanical errors.

The organiser accepts no responsibility for lost, damaged, illegible, incomplete or late registrations, regardless of whether this is due to delay in delivery or incompleteness due to system errors. Furthermore, the organiser accepts no responsibility for registration that is not received or not fully received due to circumstances of force majeure, such as traffic congestion, unauthorised intervention by third parties, malfunctions of computer and telecommunications systems or inaccurate or failed recording of incoming data transfers. Proof of transfer is not deemed to be proof of receipt by the organiser. The winner is personally responsible for all applicable taxes, duties and fees not specified in these Conditions of Participation.

 

Other

All decisions are final. The laws of the Federal Republic of Germany are exclusively applicable to the exclusion of referral provisions under German international private law. Should the participant also be the consumer, this only applies to the extent that they do not lose the protection of binding legal provisions of their state of usual residence. Should individual provisions of these Conditions of Participation be or become invalid, the validity of the remaining provisions shall remain unaffected by this.
